Delaney Responds To Maryland Climate Change Report

December 17th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

On Wednesday the Maryland Commission on Climate Change called for the state to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 40% from 2006 by 2030. The Maryland Commission on Climate Change (MCCC) was first established in 2007. It is a bipartisan group of business, environmental, labor, and government officials. A 2015 law requires the MCCC to report annually to the Governor and the General Assembly on the status of Maryland’s efforts to reduce climate change and on any recommendations.

 

Congressman Delaney issued the following statement:  

“The new report from the bipartisan Maryland Commission on Climate Change reaffirms the need for action and the dire consequences if we fail to properly address climate change,” said Congressman Delaney. “I’ve worked on the federal level to tackle this problem by authoring a comprehensive plan to accurately price greenhouse gas emissions. I urge Governor Hogan to take this new report seriously and position Maryland to be a leader in green energy innovation and the job-creation that comes with this kind of investment.”
